C J Aiken

The high flying hawks of St. Joe’s

The Saint Joseph's Hawks entered the season hoping to repeat something which last happened in 1997: win an Atlantic 10 Title. They returned all five starters from a team which went 20-14 (9-7), and all five of those players are now upperclassmen. The lone senior – Carl Jones – is the leading returning scorer, and after sitting out the team's final exhibition and first two real games, he eligible to play tonight against Florida State.

Regardless of how they finish, they're certainly going to be entertaining. The athleticism on their front line is ridiculous. 6-9 CJ Aiken and 6-8 Ronald Roberts are joined by a less athletic, but highly skilled 6-8 Halil Kanacevic.

Here are some Aiken and Roberts dunks from their 79-70 overtime win against Notre Dame.
